of these players. for the most part we've been told that mlb has dealt with these players, their agents and the players association. that's allowed them to get them to agree -- to get to how much they were involved. alex rodriquez along with ryan vaughn. he was the mvp last year. those are the two biggest nails. vaughn agreed to the suspension a few weeks ago. the latest report is this -- it was first gonna be at noon eastern. 9:00 local time. we're being told it may be pushed to 3:00 eastern. we'll hear what they will do. we've been told they will ban alex rodriquez for the rest of this year and all of next year. roughly 214 games. that's $34 of his salary. he will appeal that ban. when that happens, it will take about 20 days or so before it goes in front of an arbitrator and the final decision will be made. he could be banned from baseball and play, 15, 16, 20 games in the middle of a pennant race. he may be allowed to play as he's banned at the same time. it's very interesting to see how it will play out. for bay area fans a couple of other names bartolo colin is expected to be ment

a tough season. could mlb do something, lower ticket prices to acknowledge this mess and show fans how important they are and how appreciated they are? >> on a team by basis they certainly can the milwaukee brewers gave that to give $10 food and beverage credit who bought tickets to games for brought the price down dramatically, value of the ticket dramatically. that was a great move on the part of the brewers. i don't think we'll see a great deal of that. baseball's attendance is pretty close to what it was last year. this is not likely to reduce attendance. they have to get peds, performance-enhancing drugs out of baseball. lori: will it make baseball boring if you don't have sluggers and low-scoring game. >> i remember in the 1970's watching pitchers like tom seaver and bob gibson and just loving the games. lori: there you go. >> people come out, they come out for the competition. what they don't like and really dislike tremendously are some people trying to get an advantage by using performance-enhancing drugs, illegal drugs, to benefit themselves and that's a real problem. lori: t

completely, no pub intended. >> it's not going to be a clean case what mlb is working here, we don't know the quality of their evidence, we don't know the quality of their witnesses and how this ends up. the mediator has the power here, he can settle in between. he can remove the suspension, which i would say would be pretty highly unlikely. he could uphold the suspension or settle somewhere in between, which is where i think most fans and people following this story feel where it should end up. you get the feeling if they did meet somewhere in between, it would be difficult for rodriguez. >> let's talk about him individually. let's say it's through 2014. he's 40 years old. he's been challenged by injuries. how much game will he have left in him at that point? >> his contract takes him through the year, 2017. the extension he signed back in 2007. so, there was an assumption that rodriguez was going to play until he was 42 years old. right now he's gone through two hip surgeries in the last two years, but he's still, you look at him as a player. he's still a little rusty in the minors but

of using steroids who admitted to it fall back in the same category knowing that mlb is looking at him closely? i think only an idiot would do that. >> reporter: only candid fans come from new york, heather. heather: that is true. adam housley, thank you. bill: home against detroit on friday night. we'll see how yankees fans react >>> word from mike emanuel on president george bush, 43 now. apparently he had a procedure yesterday in dallas. this was a statement put out moments ago, reading now, during president george w. bush's examination in the cooper clinic in dallas, a blockage discovered in the an artery in his heart. it continues, at the recommendation of his doctors, president bush agreed to have a extent placed to open the blockage. the procedure was performed successfully this morning without complication at texas health presbyterian hospital, dated august 6th. that would be this morning. president bush is in high spirits and eager to return home tomorrow to resume his normal schedule on thursday. he is grateful to the skilled medical professionals who cared for him. he thanks
